Let's Dish: What's Your Least Favorite Kitchen Task?

Let's Dish: What's Your Least Favorite Kitchen Task?

Last weekend, my best friend helped me make dinner at my house. While she was up for helping me with odds and ends in the kitchen, I knew there was one task she wouldn't consider: doing the dishes. She loathes doing the dishes so much that she has been known to stock up on paper plates and plastic silverware. I don't mind so much doing the dishes, but I can relate: I absolutely loathe taking out the trash. I can't stand hauling refuse down a set of dark stairs — it's something that I avoid doing as much as possible. Tell me: When it comes to kitchen tasks, is there something that you absolutely dread doing?

Dishes (because I am the only one who will shop and cook; don't want to add dishes to the list too!). Also, hate to put away leftover food after dinner. Finding smaller bowls, plastic wrap or plastic containers, etc. Then just try to find room in the fridge for it all!

Doing the dishes for me. Especially when they are greasy, yucky pans.

Cleaning out the fridge...and doing the dishes.

You know I love to do the dishes. Party, me too. I hate to hand grate cheese. When I am making meals and that needs to be done, I give that to the first person that says "can I help".

Stove top drives me crazy. Its a black glass top that shows every iota of dust, dirt, etc. And I HATE cleaning it! Dishes don't bother me, we have a dishwasher, but I hand wash a lot of my vintage things as well as my cookware. So I'm pretty used to it. But that stove top... UGH!

I hate cleaning out the fridge - I despise it really.

I like doing dishes (I know, I'm really weird). But I WILL NOT take out the garbage or do the floors (vacuuming too). I HATE those! The bf has to do those, plus the toilet, and I do dishes (he's not allowed to do dishes because I'm really anal...), laundry and the shower. OK so I digress.

Cleaning out the drain in the kitchen sink! So gross. We need a garbage disposal.

Without a doubt, emptying the compost bucket. I always leave it until everything in the bucket is unidentifiable and moldy, and the bin outside always has fruit flies, spiders, worms, and wasps in and around it... HATE it.Cooking tasks - I get really irritated when I have to peel huge amounts of fresh garlic.

i'm with you for the whole taking out the trash thing. in my apt building we have a little chute but it doesn't fit a real garbage bag, so that means that we have to go ALL THE WAY downstairs and it's just not pleasant.

Sweeping/mopping...although I always feel so much better after it's done and clean. I think I hate it so much because the floor always seems to need it again after just a couple of days (no matter how clean I've tried to be)!

I hate doing dishes with a passion. I love to scrub the stove for some reason.

I, like everyone else, HATE to deal with raw meat, especially chicken for some reason. It just LOOKS soooo gross. I mean I'm okay with opening it, seasoning it, and cooking, but if I have to cut it up? I'd really rather not. And after my brother (also my roomie!) shattered a beer bottle in the trashcan and i had a vomit-inducing GARBAGE JUICE incident, I don't take out the trash anymore either

I don't mind the cleaning, I actually sort of enjoy it (unless I have to do it for my flatmates).I can't touch raw eggs or raw meat though, makes my stomach feel very funny. If I can I get someone else to do it for me.
